With the Municipal Election coming up, the UBCM 2022 Convention was well attended and more important than ever. At this year’s convention, the Town of Gibsons submitted a request to adopt EB21 – Hospice Services; a letter from Mayor William Beamish, click here.

EB21 was endorsed and adopted at the convention on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, with amendments. Please read the endorsed recommendation here on page 45 of the UBCM Resolution book.

BCHPCA sees this as an opportunity for growth and support from municipal electors and an excellent opportunity to engage with the community about supporting community hospice services within our regions.

Please stay tuned for our advocacy Action Plan and Key messaging to help support the growth and capacity of Hospice palliative Care in BC.
